An open day at Selgars Mill: A centre for the democratic economy, the climate emergency, and social change.

In May 2020, Stir to Action are opening a residential training centre for the democratic economy, the climate emergency, and social change in the heart of the South West.

What will the centre be for?

Our new training centre at Selgars Mill will be supporting communities to create new responses to a range of crises, from the decline of the high street to the impacts of climate change, from  youth unemployment to  food insecurity.

To support this work we’ll be hosting and offering a range of events, from short courses to small festivals, retreats to eco-weddings, organisational away days to cultural residentials, and we’d like to collaborate with other community-led initiatives in the South West.

Why would I come to the open day?

We would like to meet and engage with local communities in South West, and we're looking for ideas from local people as you know the local economy better than anyone.

We'll provide refreshments and a taster of things to come. So if you run a local business, or you're involved in a community group, or you're just keen to see what we've planned, register here and we look forward to meeting you on 25 March!

Where is Selgars Mill?
